A loan of $850 helped to purchase 2 cows.

Chynara's story

Chynara is 51 years old and is the mother of 2 children. She is a calm and industrious woman by nature. She has a high school education, and has been involved in farming from childhood. From back in Soviet times, Chynara has been working in animal husbandry and growing crops, which is the main source of income for the family. She started this business with a sum of only 5,000 Kyrgyzstan Som (KGS.) Thanks to her persistent hard work, her farm now includes 2 dairy cows and 10 sheep, and brings in monthly earning of around 7,000 Som from the sale of milk and dairy products. For the purpose of further developing her business, Chynara has approached Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 40,000 Som to buy 2 cows. She plans to re-invest the income generated by this loan into her business by purchasing more head of cattle, and in the future she also plans to repair her house.
